Chelsea's Baby Shower

We had such a wonderful time celebrating Chelsea and baby Isla!

I hosted the shower here at the house and went with a woodland theme.

We had a nice turnout. Our family isn't huge, but just about everyone was able to make it and we got some nice pictures.

We had a nice time. I accepted my limits and purchased lots of finger foods from Trader Joe's.  I usually try and make a bunch of stuff, but cooking isn't my strong suit and I just plain don't enjoy it. Instead of a cake, I asked Paul to make his famous cheesecake. He didn't disappoint!

Chelsea was blessed with so many awesome gifts. Little Isla will be well provided for!

I can't believe I'm getting another niece! It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that my little sister is going to be a mom. The years really fly by. I'm so excited for her and Nate and cannot wait to meet sweet little Isla.
